“Brilliant Brill Building” Lyrics
Micky: Thank you, mom. Thank you, Billy. Ha ha. Um, like I was saying before, I had all these incredible songwriters writing for me, uh, like Boyce and Hart, and uh, Neil Diamond, uh, um, Paul Williams, Harry Nilsson, um, Diane Hildebrand, Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil, I mean, most incredible songwriters ever, and uh, you—one young lady and her partner, um—Carole King and Gerry Goffin—who, just unbelievable. I uh, in fact, a couple of years ago, I recorded a CD, uh, an album. Well, they don’t call ’em albums right now. CD. Not even CDs now. Digital dump. Called King for a Day, and it was a tribute. Thank you. Thank both of you that bought it. Ha ha. It was a tribute to Carole King and Gerry Goffin, and her writing partners, and she continued to write uh, for us, for me, for, for years, and there was one particular song that she uh, wrote for a, a movie that we did, the Monkee movie. It was called Head, written by a young upcoming uh, actor/writer named Jack Nicholson. Oh, did I drop that name? And she wrote a couple of brilliant songs, and Ne—Mike Nesmith wrote a couple of great songs, Peter Tork, for the movie, but this one has always, you know, been one of my favorites. A Carole King uh, tune from the movie Head.
